Have you ever wondered what Link would look like if he were a female? Have you ever fantasized about playing as a female Link? If you have, we may have a t-shirt for you! Unamee is selling a t-shirt called “What if Zelda was a Girl?”. This may seem like a confusing title for the t-shirt though, as it seems to portray a female Link rather than Zelda. The artist who created the shirt, NeleVdM, clarifies her intentions about the shirt in a short Q&A on the site:

“This “female Zelda” is probably my most controversial work. Wear at your own risk.”

“I had designed a shirt featuring Link from The Legend of Zelda. One of my friends commented “I like the way you drew Zelda” and that’s where the idea for this shirt originated. It represents one of the greatest nightmares of every Legend of Zelda fan.”

Another thing the creator states is that the shirt is a joke. It’s still an absolutely wonderful rendition of Link (or Zelda, however you choose to look at it) as a female. The shirt will only set you back $12, is available in both men’s and women’s sizes, and comes in gray, light blue, and light green. This is a limited time offer and ends tonight at midnight Eastern Standard Time, so if you’re interested in purchasing this interesting t-shirt, act fast!

      The shirt is a joke, the creator also mentions this in the title of the work on Redbubble.

    Also interesting to note, the creator of this shirt is a female. Just thought I would pass that along!

  • Michael

    this shirt scares me. link is such an identifiable character to most people. i would never wear this. you would get stopped by way too many people to tell you that your shirt is retarded. i get the joke, but most casual fans of the series won’t. just having to stop and explain to everyone that quite a few people actually think zelda is link’s name, would make this shirt stay in my closet.

  • Luciano Gianola

    The seller made a shirt based on an inside joke based on something a friend said, and, in asking a legitimate question of having a female Link, decides to sexy her up.
    How are we supposed to take this seriously, again?

    • Jaidyn Reiman

      We’re not. That’s the whole point. The whole thing is a joke.

      • Luciano Gianola

        Well, “haha.” That’s the sound of me not buying the shirt.

        • Jaidyn Reiman

          Oh I have no intention of buying it either. I do think the joke is funny but I’d be too embarrassed to wear it as well. 😛 I might have considered it if it didn’t say Zelda but I probably would mainly stick to using it as an indoors shirt.

          She did say it’d be her most “controversial” thing yet. I highly doubt she intended on it selling well, either.

  • But Zelda is a girl…

    • Jaidyn Reiman

      Read the post. Its based on the whole notion that, because the series is called “The Legend of Zelda,” a lot of people think that Link’s name is Zelda.

      • Bob Blah Blah

        But nobody thinks that.

        • Jaidyn Reiman

          That’s completely and totally false. Most people know, but early on that wasn’t the case, and even now some people STILL think that. Doesn’t help that naming Link “Zelda” in the original Legend of Zelda unlocked the ability to go straight into the second quest, which only made things worse.

  • Me

    Yeah, way to confuse people even more.

  • EnaZeibekiko

    Clever shirt–I like it. Also, reading the comments: some people don’t have a sense of humor?

    Check out this creator’s new t-shirt “What if Samus was a girl?”

  • Kristina Elizabeth Casteel

    If I had the money, I’d surely buy it. I’m in no way offended. It’s intended to be a joke, and I find it pretty funny. If it confuses some people, then all the better!

  • Ed Word

    This is idiotic. First off, the joke is stupid.

    More importantly, if Link were female, she wouldn’t be prancing about without knickers, in high heels, and with long hair getting in the way.
    This is not a “wonderful rendition.” It is a horrible rendition.

      youre an idiot

    this question is all wrong because zelda is a girl shes called princess zelda, the question should of been what if link was a girl.

    • Idontknowwhatimupto

      Then it wouldn’t be funny.

  • Idontknowwhatimupto

    I’d be to afraid to wear this.
